Reviewer: disgruntledgoat - favoritefavorite - February 8, 2014
Subject: Great Sound, Sloppy Performance
This is a rich, well-balanced soundboard recording of a boring show. The excellent quality of this tape is showcased during the delicate opening to Loser. Unfortunately, Jerry's solo, which in '71 could be transcendent, is short and uninspired.

With the possible exceptions of Morning Dew and Casey Jones, I wouldn't listen to any of these tracks twice. The band never seems to gel on this night, and they're particularly unsynchronized during Hard to Handle and Easy Wind.

I queued this up because I've long enjoyed the next night, and Mr. Miller's remaster of that show (#110185) is excellent. Don't get suckered by the beautiful sound of this tape. With so many other great Dead shows to listen to, this lackluster performance isn't worth your time.

Checkout the lead 3 minutes into going down the road. wowieeeeeee step back and let it rip.
These Manhattan center shows just have the perfect sound. The boys are on in early 1971.

Thanks for not cutting up Good Lovin'.

Interesting end to Easy Wind.

Did I hear wrong, or did Ron get it right at the end of Easy Wind, and the other boys got it wrong? Usually it's the other way around!

Sound is great, the description is way out of wack.

Sounds like my wife.

But, back to the music - we all know the show in question (we do, don't we?) and it's not in question (questions, questions, questions - why no answers?)and so any enhancement in the 'presentation' (Miller or otherwise) is just more icing on an already very nice cake.

And the chit-chat, well without resurrecting the 'to matrix or not to matrix' argument - no, we don't argue here, let's say "discussion" instead - well all those between song conversations, audience participation (calls for Dark Star), flubs and whatever, well (2) they just add more character and make our favourite shows even better.

Thank you 'Mr. Charlie' and also thank you for the surprise birthday present you also just put up - the much improved Portland 23/02/71 show (apols for the UK date format) - yes, much superior - bye bye to the tape flips in 'Me & Bobby McGee' and Wharf Rat. You are a real leg end !!!

Cheers,

Subject: Really nice, warm show
..as Charlie Miller masters tend to be. The guys are relaxed and in good form. Jerry's voice is smooth and soulful and his guitar sounds like Tennessee whiskey. Bob's guitar has a beautiful, jazz-like ringing tone. His solo jam in "Hard to Handle", well, I didn't know he had it in him. It's awesome. Phil is low-key, subtle and tasty throughout. Pig is in good form though early signs of the decline are felt, if not quite heard. This sbd would make a nice matrix to zest it up a bit with the crowd effervescence. The songs are mostly short but sweet. Definitely a keeper.
